Mindy Kaling’s “Velma” Won’t Include Scooby-Doo

Mindy Kaling’s animated “Velma” series landed on HBO Max today.  If you saw the trailer that released yesterday, you probably noticed an important “Scooby-Doo!” character missing . . . SCOOBY DOO.

Well, for starters, it’s an origin story about Velma and the events that led to her assembling Fred, Daphne, and Norville (Shaggy).

Back at New York Comic Con in October, the showrunner said they wanted to separate it from the children’s show, since this one will have mature elements.

But the main reason is Warner Brothers Animation didn’t give them permission to use Scooby.

The first two episodes premiered today.  New episodes will come out on Thursdays until the finale on February 9th.  (EW)
